What is it about?
We have a dream: for four days, every year in our city, Turin, we can all feel like part of one family: Africans, Italians, and people from every ethnic group. We want to bring Africa in Turin to let you all know and understand how wonderful it is.That's why we organize the Panafrican Festival since 4 years.
Initially, in 2014, the Festival was born as a celebration of African communities in Turin. This idea became so popular that every year the participating countries and the audience grew.
The ambitious goal is to gather the communities of all 55 african countries and, in a brotherhood and collaborating mood, to promote cultural, social and humanitarian activities and projects to increase social inclusion and right protection.
Today that the Panafrican Festival reached the fourth edition we feel ready to step up and open ourselves to the entire city to raise awareness of Cultures of diasporas and promote brotherhood.
But our commitment is not enough: in order to achieve more and more people we need to raise the artistic quality of the offer. Thus, we ask your help: the funds we will collect on Eppela, will be used for the Festival, for artists, singers, dancers and musicians ready to surprise and overwhelm you.
If you share this dream with us, help us contributing to this project and come to the Panafrican Festival May 25th to 28th in Turin to collect your rewards. We'll be waiting for you, can't wait to see you!
